After watching the first five seasons of Game of Thrones in two months, it was perfect timing for my girlfriend and me to find ourselves at this show. Granted, most of the references are for the first season. It's not your traditional burlesque, but the...More

I visited here on the night they did StarWars: A Nude Hope. It was a riot. Hilariously cheesy and raunchy but some of the best entertainment I had in the windy city. It's in a hipster neighborhood so be on the lookout for PBR and...More

Theater provided with exceptional source of entertainment. It's a small intimate setting perfect for a small crowd of friends. Provides clever outtakes of things like Indiana Jones or Star Wars in a burlesque setting. Highly recommend worth the visit!!!

Just go, be ready to be amazed at a creative display of art. I went for a comedy show. Yes the production value was low but so was the cost of the ticket.
